An exclusive vineyard and olive life-style estate situated in the Stellenbosch Valley with beautiful views overlooking the mountains. The Shiraz vineyards are cultivated through numerous eco-steps to reach their optimum health. Natural methods are used to fertilize soil and control weeds, insects and rodents. The young olive trees with 4 varieties (Coratina, Leccino, Frantoio, Kalamata) are now in production.
The homestead is a near replica of a 17th century French chateau build on 4 levels with double volumes and exquisite finishes. A music room is especially designed for small and intimate performances and functions.
The beautiful Chapel is available for weddings and some of the self-catering cottages are leased with long term rentals (which can be terminated) and/or can be used for holiday accommodation.
The property boasts an organic vegetable & herb garden and over 1 000 ornamental trees. The large dam has become a bird sanctuary with a wide variety of species including the Blue Crane and Cape Eagle Owl.
